The plan was for Phil to fly me up here (Tocumwal. The Falke was still here) then I load up the Falke and we head off to Lake Cargelligo in company (Phil in the Pacer, me in the Falke). We got here a bit after lunchtime and started loading up the Falke. Mike had left the shiny new canopy off to make this process easier. Despite having done a practice pack earlier in the week, it still took a while to ensure everything was secured and that nothing could foul the controls.
A few people dropped by to wish me a good trip which was really nice. We chatted away and ended up having a late lunch. It was so nice to feel the sunshine again after a Melbourne winter. Probably a bit too nice...
We ended up deciding to stay the night here at Tocumwal and to leave in the morning. Leaving Phil for 5 weeks will be really hard for both of us, so I wanted to make sure we had a nice last weekend together before I left without rushing around. So a nice relaxed night in Tocumwal seemed like the right thing to do. It is his birthday weekend after all!
